It used to be excellent! It used to be an excellent app, very simple yet did the work well. After the recent updates it becomes horrible. Adds jump on every other word when look up for it and block the screen entirely!! In addition, they forgot to mention in the descriptions that you need to pay if you want to get rid of those jumping adds. With new add free Google translate that offer offline dictionaries, nobody need this app anymore.
Problematic after upgrade I have upgraded it but now it has become more problematic. It works offline but does not translate properly. I switch it to online mode but after sometime it goes back to offline again. There is no settings to make it online and keep it like this. Offline mode is NOT GOOD AS THE RIVAL OFFLINE DICTIONARIES. I gave 5 stars when i was using the free version.
Just paid for the $34 Premium version and it stinks! As soon as I paid $34, this app asked me to check the dictionaries I wanted to upload to my phone, and it froze in the middle of uploading maybe not even 10% of the languages I requested. It's frozen. It doesn't let me do a thing to continue uploading dictionaries. This has nothing to do with my powerhouse LG V10 phone equipped with an additional 64 Gigs almost-empty Micro SD card. On top of that, if I type a mid-sized English text and try to translate it to a different language, Babylon is
Not useful at all. I downloaded it to use to Indonesia translation and pay the extra to get the upgrade! I want to be able to use the English to Indonesia translation! Please respond and tell me what you can do about this! I paid $17.50 for the recommended upgrade . If you need to email me or call me please let me know .
Lots of bugs and hassles as always, paid or free. Better to use simple and free one with phonetic codes. One funny thing is this one doesn't have recent(or history) feature. And online should be default. Useless....!
Worked great, until I had to pay. I loved it, the translations were spot on, everything was great. until the free trial ran out, and I hate tiered subscription systems. So I payed $11 to get the translator back and I don't like paying $11 for a mobile app not to get full access to the stupid thing. I regret even paying anything. Never buying from Babylon again. Gat a free translator that will work better.
